“So You Think You Can Dance” finalist Ashleigh Di Lello was mysteriously missing from the contestant intro Dec. 8, but it wasn’t long before viewers found out why, as host Cat Deeley trotted an arm sling-wearing Di Lello out on stage.
It seems Ashleigh dislocated her shoulder during practice, and though she feels fine to compete, the doctor will not clear her just yet.
The judges did not immediately disqualify Ms. Di Lello, instead opting to let America decide her fate. Viewers were given the opportunity to vote for Ashleigh despite her lack of dancing this week.
On Wednesday’s results show, we’ll find out whether or not her fans delivered.
The fans of her husband Ryan — also a finalist — may aid her cause, as he emotionally encouraged viewers to vote for her after he performed. Let’s just hope it’s not at his expense.
